Optio is a range of versatile tactical robots designed to carry out various missions without exposing dismounted personnel: opening of routes, reconnaissance and observation, logistics or fire support. Nexter's efforts are focused on increasing the operational relevance of these robotic systems by pursuing three complementary areas of development:
* Versatility and modularity to equip these robotic systems with adaptability that will make the Forces more responsive to evolving threats,
* Integration of robots and drones into combat vehicles, towards the constitution of composite systems (Inhabited - Uninhabited),
* Development of supervised autonomy to allow the operator to focus on the core of the tactical mission.

On the occasion of the IDEX 2019 defense exhibition in the United Arab Emirates, Nexter displayed an armed variant of its Optio range. Combining Milrem's THeMIS remote control platform and a Nexter remote-controlled 20mm turret, Optio-X20 would provide a combat group with means of observation and fire support operated remotely under the control of the human operator.
